Part 2/2 of India. Taj Mahal, Agra & Varanasi.
Sometimes I think that the most basic and mundane things within our human existence can reflect the most beauty when you take a second look. People mulling around, going about their day, no facades or pretence, just life. and its beautiful.
India has allowed me to glimps a little deeper into the lives of the strangers around me as life, for the most part, is lived out so publicly. There is seldom allowance to hide in privacy. From washing clothes, or ones own body in the river, to joyfully or mournfully praying, and even life and death. All are experienced openly, without apology or shame. In so doing, I found so much courage and strength in each face that passed by. I'll Say it again, because i can't say it enough, India, and its people, are truly beautiful!
Here are a few more moments from my time there. I hope you enjoy.
